2nd Ward Roads Update

There is a flurry of activity on roads in the 2nd Ward. Here are the highlights:

1. Watchung Ave between 7th St and Hillside is being paved. Curb work continues this week. Concrete driveway aprons will be installed beginning later this week or next week. Paving is expected to happen the last week of November or the first week of December.

2. Old and missing street signs are being replaced in the Netherwood neighborhood today and tomorrow.

3. The intersection of 7th St and Belividere Ave. will have crosswalks painted tomorrow or Friday, weather permitting. Pedestrian crossing signs will be added for west bound traffic along 7th St east of the intersection. This busy intersection has seen many accidents and has a lot of pedestrian traffic going to and from the Netherwood train station.

Thanks go to the Public Works employees and to the local advocates for speaking out on behalf of their neighbors for these improvements. More to follow.

Why don't we learn from experience? When the Kensington Ave repavement was started in October with the same story "completed in November" Dasheids after I raised an objection as to doing road work late fall assurerd us that it would be completed before the weather got too cold. Only problem he didn't say which year.

I posted a b log two years ago about proper time for blacktop pavements and their maintenance. Perhaps all in our government should take the time to revisit that article.
